The waiter was extremely attentive, proactive, and just all around wonderful. The food was exceptional as well. Get the Mexican combination plate! It is amazing. Honestly the best meal I had in Mexico..... and one of my top meals ever. Delicious! It is also really reasonably priced. The indoor courtyard was beautiful. I will be back!

Just visited Taxco and had a great time. Third visit to Taxco and still enjoy the Sotavento Restaurant. Breakfast was great, waitress was exceptional. We also had dinner there one night. I had the pasta with ham, bacon and tomato. Very tasty. Highly recommend.

Four of us had a wonderful meal in the courtyard and we all enjoyed the food. It was the day of the dead weekend and they had some fun decorations in the courtyard. The food did take a while to arrive but we enjoyed a nice drink and soaked up the atmosphere. The prices were very reasonable and I would... More

It is hard to find good food at a restaurant in a very touristy place like taxco but reading from the reviews here in tripadvisor, i decided to give it a try and it just didn't dissapoint, the food was very good (Crepas de Huitlacoche - a Mexican delicacy) and other stuff and it was very good!! the hotel is...

I love this place. We've been coming here since their first location. Their current location inside the Hotel Los Arcos lends a symbiotic relationship as each business gives the other something they don't have independently. Breakfast and dinner options are well thought out and the combination of flavors are creative and easy on the pallet. There are always locals as... More

As a business traveller, who visits Mexico various times a year, I prefer to visit this restaurant during my stays in Taxco. The restaurant is located in the beautiful patio of the Hotel Los Arcos and is a perfect place for a romantic dinner. The staff is very polite and efficient and the food is definitely the best you can... More

The wonderful courtyard setting gave a nice first impression. Expectations fell somewhat, seeing the rather uninteresting menu. Three of us ordered the enchiladas con mole and one had the Mexican tasting platter. I asked for a mezcal while waiting for the food to arrive. It tasted like nail polish remover and made me ponder the prospect of waking up blind... More

The Mexican menu is varied and the food is very good and inexpensive. Although the service is not the best, it meets the Taxco norm. Nevertheless the meals are excellent. There is only one wine for sale but it is solid and extremely inexpensive. The alcohol prices are also extremely reasonable. The restaurant is in the covered courtyard of the... More
